Miss Cleo

What happened to her? We used to see her ads every 5 minutes and now she's gone (thanks God) but why the sudden disappearance?

I heard she got sued for being a phony, like so many other quacks in her crazy-ass line of work. So you won't be seeing much of her any more. But no worries, there will always be other people trying to pull scams.

If you actually believed that she was real you deserved what you paid for. They way she presents herself on those TV adds is rediculous. Phony Jamaican accent and everything else to go along with it just doesn't make me want to pay 95 Cents a minute to have this lady talk to me.

Her marketing company got slammed big time by the AG of Iowa (I believe) or one of the mid-American states. Also Florida (her home state) was also looking at a huge suit for phone fraud. Since then, she went belly-up (obviously, she didn't see it coming  Smile) and that's that (until the next Miss Cleo comes along)!

Lol... but try $3.95 a minute! Big grin

By the way, did anyone here see the episode of That's My Bush about Miss Cleo? That was hilarious - it showed the desk where "Miss Cleo" answers the phone, and there were about four of them working there, one of whom was a white man! (who did a really good job disguising his voice, I might add...)
